    Putting all your eggs in 1 basket (Deuce Hogan) still, huh? You'd think TOE would have learned by now seeing how they're going into their 4th year under Stanley and he hasn't lived up to the hype that was placed on him (McShay had him as a top 3 QB last year). Especially a kid like Deckerrs who blew up out of nowhere recruitingwise this summer, who's family is lifelong TOE fans, to not even consider offering the kid is......I'll let yall fill in the blank. o_O

    They will have 4 QBs on the roster. They will have Petras, Mansell, Padilla and Hogan. I'd say 4 is enough, and I can't recall a time when they had more than that on scholarship at one time. How many will the Clones have on schollies at the start of 2020 season?

    5, but since ISU doesn’t keep 2 punters on scholly like Iowa, that is a fine number.

    5 - Purdy (JR), Mitchell (RS Soph), Dean (RS Fresh), Baumann (True Fresh) Deckerr (True Fresh). Mitchell & Deckerr have the ability to play multiple positions if that ends up being the team's end need but both are being given the opportunity to be quarterbacks first.

    Based on what? Athletic ability doesn't guarantee that a guy can simply switch positions and be successful, especially if he's been playing QB for years. Lanning was an outlier.

    Lanning and....

    Forgot about Flynn. Oh, and that Darius Reynolds guy wasn't too bad either.

    I don't have any memory of Reynolds being recruited as a QB. Flynn is the last QB for ISU that successfully made the transition to another position and that would have been what, 2004?

    Pretty sure Ellis Hobbs switched sides of the ball after his freshman year from RB to DB.

    JaMaine Billups was a highly regarded RB recruit. Ended up being a great safety. Put me in the boat that thinks Dekker is going to be a stud QB though. Huge arm and extremely mobile for his size.

    The guy Sage beat out for the starting job switched to LB and was solid.....Derrick Johnson? Something like that.

    Typically in HS you put your most talented guy at QB. That's why it's so common for QB's to play a different position in college.

    He wasn't recruited as a QB though, he only took snaps at WR.

    Five QBs is not too many, especially when 1-2 of them are probably redshirting (and running the scout team). I'd say that's about the perfect number for teams that run the QB some. Six is probably too many and four, well, you better be happy with your walk-ons if injuries pile up.

    The thing that I like about Dekkers is that we can bring back the Lanning package. That was extremely effective picking up short yardage first downs. Bouman is going to be good, but he ran a 5.25. Zone read is off the table with him in there. Also, having good QB depth should allow Re-Al Mitchell to play some slot WR without being so concerned about injury to your backup QB. He has elite speed and quickness and it would be a shame to sit him on the bench for 4 years.

    Not to mention, QBs transfer ALL THE TIME. We had two transfer just last year. I have zero issues with building up some depth in the room. When Purdy graduates (or declares if he gets that chance) and they name a starter, there's a good chance that someone transfers. That's just the way it goes these days. It's Campbell's job to keep recruiting over the guys already on the roster.

    I think the kid has too much potential to pass up.

    I don't think the "Lanning package" stuff does him justice.
